Foldables, Foldables Everywhere

I couldn't resist sharing these two photos of Foldables in use. Amy Mallow, a contributing author to the blog, shared these samples of Foldables. I loved how she created the Foldable, photocopied it for students, and allowed them to fold, cut, and fill in the answers. Students appreciate this as the "shell" has already been completed. Notice how the Foldable was added to student Interactive Notebooks for easy access and review when needed. Foldables make a great addition to Interactive Notebooks. Amy states, "I have been using Foldables left and right with my second graders. They LOVE them, and I have noticed that they refer back to them when we're talking about something we've made with a Foldable." Parents appreciate Foldables too because they are a great way to help their children prepare for tests and quizzes.
